Race for Life Llanelli Event tops £34k

The Race for life event in  Llanelli has raised over £34,000.

Hundreds of people turned up to run and support the runners in the 3, 5 and 10 k races, which were held at the Festival Field site on Sunday (June 13). It was the 30th year the event had taken place.

In extremely hot weather runners gathered in the famous pink colours to run the gruelling course in order to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

Many of the runners had been effected by cancer or were running in memory of sufferers who had passed away.

The St John’s Ambulance were kept busy as some runners succumbed to the heat.
